Athletes should choose a weight on the barbell that they could complete unbroken when fresh, but one that will likely be completed in quick singles or very small sets during the workout. Athletes can also look to choose a pull-up variation they could complete unbroken when fresh, but one that break into 2 sets per round within the workout.
Looking at the overall volume today, we have 25 moderate weight clean and jerks and 50 chest to bar pull-ups. Taking into consideration how we would likely break those up as a whole will help athletes make a decision on what is best for them each round. Right off the bat, we can confidently say that singles will likely be the best option on the clean and jerks. The pull-ups will be athlete dependent, but we are probably looking at 1-3 sets here. 5-5 or 4-3-3 are options for 2 and 3 set strategies. Whatever the chosen option, the goal is to minimize time spent not moving.
